Format: Audio CD
As most of you probably know,Alan Davey was a vital member of Hawkwind from 1984-96. Believe this was his first of numerous solo releases. Davey has,in fact returned to tour with Dave Brock and crew in later years. I've had this CD for quite some time now,as I must say that it's every bit as good as one might expect. Fellow '90's Hawkster vocalist / front-man Ron Tree lent Davey a hand in the making of this must-have twelve-track import CD. He apparently co-wrote and sings on "The Call", "Ancient Light" and "Pre-Med". Davey plays everything on 'Captured Rotation' - bass, lead, rhythm and acoustic guitar, synthesizer and wave segs. He provides the stellar vocals on "Thunderbirds". Several cool instrumentals here that'll have you keeping this title in your 'current rotation stack' for awhile are "Never Comedown", the somewhat hypnotic "Space Bass", "Special Wave" and the cataclysmic "Hawkestrel". A worthy pick. Check out the other CD's that Davey has put out. Very nice.

***************Personnel
Alan Davey: All Instruments
Ron Tree: Vocals (tracks 1,4,12)

***************Technical Stuff
The sound quality is great. My version was released on Hawk UK, which is a voiceprint imprint run in conjunction with Captain Dave. Dave almost never releases a badly 'loudness war' disc; the stuff that goes through his hands almost always gets excellent treatment and this disc is no exception. You shouldn't have an sound quality issues with this one.

***************The Music
This is pretty much a quintessential space rock album, with 9/12 being instrumental songs. Ron Tree, another Hawkwind alumni, provides vocals on three tracks. Whereas Hawkwind always has a slight tongue-in-cheek quality, this album is deadly serious. The music alternates from big riffing grinding rocking numbers to ethereal deep space ambient, all heavy, brooding, and dark. I wish it was a soundtrack because I would love to see the movie this music would be accompanying; I imagine it would be a dystopic post-nuclear number, directed by Ridley Scott and based on a Cormac McCarthy novel.

***************Summary
If you like space rock, get this disc.
